Wallonian startups were seen in full force at CES 2022. The Tech event was held in Las Vegas from 5 to 7 January 2022. Fifteen Walloon start-ups and SMEs presented their innovations at the world’s biggest tech event. In fact, their stand was actually opened by Gary Shapiro. However, the showstopper of the display was Levita’s levitating display case. Consequently, Wallonia has already been re-signed for next year, as it received such positive feedback and signed several contracts!
Over the course of past participations, AWEX has encountered a lot of success. Therefore this year, AWEX collaborated with the Digital Agency, the TWIST cluster, and the Infopole TIC. Furthermore, it was to set up two separate Digital Wallonia startups stands at the CES show in Las Vegas from 5 to January 8, 2022. First was a Venetian Expo #51130. And, second was Eureka Park #61255. So, lets look at the Wallonia startups displayed at the Venetian Expo.

Back2Buzz envisions to become a European key player in High Grade refurbished high end smartphones and green accessories. In fact, it envisions to be the preferred supplier of corporates wishing to extend their ecological footprint throughout the circular economy. Next to having developed a successful privileged distribution network of sound partnerships in Europe it envisions to enter non-European countries.
In the same way, Back2Buzz believes that the refurbishment of smartphones can reduce the electronic waste mountain and re-use dozens of minerals needed to fabricate a smartphone. Back2Buzz easily extends the life cycle of the smartphones by another 2 to 3 years by refurbishing them. Afterward, Back2Buzz launched an entire range of eco-friendly accessories. Additionally, some of them are entirely bio-degradable.
Besides, Back2Buzz developed a buy back program based on an app to calculate the residual value of a smartphone and check the cosmetics by an Autograding solution.

intoPIX is an innovative technology provider of low power, low complexity image processing and video compression IP-cores. The technologies that we license are enabling the simplified connectivity, reduced latency, reduced power and an increased quality in many devices and applications.
At CES 2022, they showed how the new image Sensors and cameras, automotive ADAS systems, mobile devices, 8K displays, 5G/ wireless video devices get benefit from our technologies.
The following technologies were highlighted at the show:
- JPEG XS technology – the first IP-core & software implementations of the new ISO JPEG XS compression algorithm (for ASIC, FPGA and software). JPEG XS is the standard for microsecond-latency lightweight video compression, known as intoPIX TicoXS®. (www.intopix.com/jpegxs).
- TicoRAW technology – the new low memory and low complexity raw image processing and compression designed to reduce bandwidth and preserve raw image sensor data information.
- Flawless imaging (FIP) and FlinQ technologies – This technology is especially designed for 5G and other wireless applications, cloud-based gaming. Where we cannot compromise on latency and image quality. intoPIX will demonstrate new efficient ways to transmit, store or manage higher resolutions (HD, 4K, 8K). It reduces device’s power consumption, complexity, memory, and video bandwidth. It offers a zero latency preserving lossless quality (from 4:1 down to 20:1 compression) and preserving high dynamic range (HDR) for both visualization and analytics. The startup’s IP-cores are licensed under several platforms including ASIC, FPGA, GPU or CPU. Visit the intoPIX booth (booth #51130 – Venetian Expo) to see live demonstrations of the intoPIX technologies. To learn more about intoPIX or arrange a private demonstration.
